12 Pictures for 12/12/12

Andrea over at the fishbowl is hosting a 12 Pictures for 12/12/12 blog carnival today. I’ll be joining in (if I remember, GAH) by taking one photo each hour for 12 hours today. I’ll update this post throughout the day (in fits and starts). It’s going to be an interesting day for us because the kids are here all day – there’s strike action by Ontario’s teachers in our board today, so no school. I’ll have my three, plus MyFriendJen’s two – it’s going to be a busy house.

7:45 a.m.
Advent Calendar activity for today. You’re going to be seeing a lot of that tablecloth.
7:45 a.m.

8:45 a.m.
Kids watching Lego Ninjago while I enjoy a coffee and this week’s Entertainment Weekly.

9:45 a.m.
Working on books as today’s advent activity – this is the Little Miss’ version of The Island of Misfit Toys, part of her book about Rudolph.

11 a.m.
A little late. I forgot – you can see why, I was busy a-pie makin’. This is a peach-blueberry pie for Sir Monkeypants’ Christmas potluck at work tomorrow. I had to use frozen fruit so it’s a little runny and I’m worried about it. Worst case, he can bring it home uneaten and I’ll eat it with a spoon.

12 noon
Making hot dogs for lunch.

1 p.m.
I spent the last half hour playing Dominion (best! game! ever!) with MyFriendJen’s son – it turned the hour just as I put the boxes away.

2 p.m.
MyFriendJen came in for a cup of tea when she arrived to pick up her kids. Bonus pic: Gal Smiley entertained us by showing us videos she’d made on her camera of herself playing on our brand new piano, which arrived yesterday.

3 p.m.
Just sitting down to watch The Polar Express with the kids – this is Frame Number One.

4 p.m.
Still watching the movie – now with popcorn.

5 p.m.
Starting dinner, with pie in the background.

6 p.m.
My dinner – photo actually by Gal Smiley, who got very interested in this project throughout the day and became my primary reminder person and self-declared model. She saw me taking the 6 o’clock photo of my dinner and asked if she could take one too, and hers was better!

7 p.m.
Gal Smiley’s beloved panda slippers – getting ready to get a snack before bed.

That’s it for today – trust me, nothing really interesting happens after this point anyway. All you’d get is black squares representing me asleep on the couch. Happy 12-12-12!

  1. LOVE LOVE LOVE this – I love when you sneak corners of your kids in. Peach and blueberry is one of the most salubrious fruit combinations. I’m not entirely sure what salubrious means but it felt right. Apologies if it means something dirty.

    That pie….I want to know if it comes home or if it got eaten there…yum! I enjoyed this challenge too, my first. Kind of neat, isn’t it…

    I like your tablecloth. The pie is beautiful … I’ve never yet dared to try a lattice pie crust. And the panda slippers are awesome, and have given me another Christmas gift idea 🙂
